Hey Bighorn- Thanks for this thread.
We have never been in the market for a "good" cooler. Our Igloo worked fine for us, and we had a seat on a board on top. I always thought that the good coolers were too tall for our setup. Well, we are re-configuring our rigging, we have ditched the seat and can now stand a bit more height above the rail. With our igloo, we'd still need a board because the lid is not sound on it's own. What better solution than to upgrade to a good cooler and we won't need that stupid board anymore!
The drain plug in the center is going to be AWESOME! No more pain trying to open the side drain as it is so hard to get a hand in between it and the tubes. Yeehaw! Better ice storage!!!
There can never be too many cooler posts on the Buzz......
